Whimsy Stamps ~ Pumpkin Treat Basket

Hey crafty friends, I've had such a fun crafty play this weekend. So so nice that it's been a long weekend here in New Zealand, so I've been doing a lil' crafty catching up. I really wanted to created some fun treat boxes to take with us to our pals place on Halloween. I usually host our post Halloween party each year, but this year one of my lovely pals is doing the hosting, so I thought I'd craft a few cute treat boxes to take. 

I've used the largest pumpkin die to create this cute little treat basket from the fabulous Build-A-Pumpkin Patch die set. I've created a little basket using a simple template and added the pumpkin dies on either side. The front I've decorated with the Halloween Sentiment die released this month from Whimsy Stamps and I added some tiny bats from the new Bats and Bubbles Border die from Whimsy Stamps. So many gorgeous Halloween elements were released this and last month. I love these two sets particularly and I know they'll be my 'go to' dies next Halloween too.

I left the back of the wee treat basket plain, though I coloured the tops of both the front and back with a green Promarker. I had a lil' mesh wrap in orange from some fruit this week, which worked perfectly to line this lil' basket. A fun finish I think.

This treat basket looks little, but actually can tuck away quite a few little treats. Plenty to make one lil' trick or treater very happy. It was so fun to make and really didn't take me that long thanks to the lovely pumpkin die.

We've had a fabulous Mini-Release this weekend at Whimsy, you can click through on the link above for a peek. Oh my goodness the cuteness! Christmas is coming folks! This Mini-Release is in honour of the Whimsy Retreat that's happening this weekend. So these items are 'pre-order' items. They'll post with the New Releases on November 1st, but don't miss out, there's some serious cuteness in this release! I'll be back soon to share another two trick or treat boxes. I just couldn't help myself, I was on a roll! Wishing you all a wonderful week. Hugs xoxo
